Teaching The Democrats How To Fight
February 20, 2011 § 1 Comment
This is a fantastic interview on AltNet with the two founders of the Progressive Change Campaign Committee. Very much worth reading if you work in online organising, progressive politics or follow the US political scene.
It looks at the new strategy PCCC is using – combining online action, fundraising for candidates, field operations and insider lobbying, some of the battles it’s had with the Democratic Party – notably healthcare, and has a big lesson on advocacy – ask politicians to follow, not to lead.
